J.C. Blair Dietitians offer Healthy Lunch n' Learn Program
As trends continue to indicate Americans are interested in improving their diets and leading more healthful lifestyles, the American Dietetic Association reminds everyone that an easy way to focus on eating better is to \"Eat Right with Color,\" which is this year\'s theme of National Nutrition Monthģ. Each March, ADA focuses attention on returning to the basics of healthy eating. This year\'s National Nutrition Month theme encourages consumers to remember to include a colorful variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and dairy on their plates every day.
